I had originally booked the Toulouse-Latrec special package with tickets included but found a cheaper rate on their website for their Easter promotion so switched and saved over $200 on the whole weekend, plus received 2 free cinema tickets
Check in was seamless, was in room 803 across from the service elevator and laundry room but didn't hear a thing as the cleaning staff were only performing pre-booked room turndowns.
Room was really nice, bathroom was spacious especially the shower. Cupboard space was more than enough (although you never get enough hangers). The tv was better that the last one I had in Melbourne.
I didn't have breakfast at the hotel but there are two cafes around the back that are very nice to eat at and have quite a good atmosphere. The location right next to the lake was great for my morning run and not far from any sightseeing in and around canberra.
My one complaint was that the minibar didn't work, wasn't keeping anything cold and I usually purchase a few drinks from the supermarket to put in there but instead I had to keep it in the reception fridge which made me feel slightly awkward everytime I asked for one of my drinks. Overall I would definitely recommend staying here and I will be staying there again anytime I need to go to Canberra
